TELDAP International Conference 2012


Following the successful conference series of 2009 TELDAP, 2010 TELDAP and 2011 TELDAP, the next TELDAP International Conference will be scheduled on February 21-24, 2012 at Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. The 2012 TELDAP International Conference, hosted by the International Collaboration and Promotion Division of Taiwan e-Learning & Digital Archives Program (TELDAP), provides an international forum for researchers in the Digital Archives and e-Learning communities to exchange their new ideas, latest research results and discussions for future development. It is essential to organize a high-quality, well-attended and up-to-date conference on various areas of digital archive and e-Learning.

Next year’s conference theme is Convergence, Collaboration & Creativity (3C). The invention of book printing in the 15th Century and the organization of knowledge in research libraries allowed unprecedented access to knowledge. To collect, curate, preserve and make available ever-increasing amounts of archival data, the state-of-the-art Information and Communication Technology will be needed. Future accomplishment will be accelerated through persistent access to data and digital materials and their uses and re-use. Over the past few years, digitization and Internet together have revolutionized many disciplines of research, in particular humanity and social sciences. The innovative research projects encourage more collaboration and make their results easier to reuse and re-purpose.

Topics covered in the 2012 conference include: the citizen cyberscience and archives, innovative applications- content, data, and tools, scientific data and biodiversity collections, digital preservation, geographic information system (GIS) and sustainability. Via the series of TELDAP conferences, together we could bring global leaders and creative researchers with the goal to explore new approaches to build future research libraries, archives and sustainable data infrastructure.
